We had such a nice stay at the Inn at Avila Beach! Super nice staff let us check out late (and i mean late) and was so accomodating. Great for kids- they had boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs. I love the decor -like Mexican beach place. this is not high end guys, it is rustic charm. My daughter age 12 had so much fun fishing (rent a pole for $5 at the pier), kayaking (rent a wet suit for $7 all day), and of course watching her sis in the state honor band at Cal Poly. AND we got 10% off many of the places to eat because we stayed at Inn at Avila Beach. thanks for the great getaway!
